Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

Integration of interprofessional education (IPE) at the student level is necessary to ensure an understanding of integrated health care. This study assessed IPE programming in occupational therapy education. IPE programming should focus on immersion in direct experiences, and faculty should receive more support from academic institutions.
